1 Votes - "Best for Geocaching"


Valdosta is known for southern hospitality and football, from the success of Valdosta State’s Division II program to the community’s support for local high school teams. Their claim-to-fame is being named TitleTown USA by ESPN, but they’re just as proud of their friendliness.

Local restaurants, like King’s Grill and Covington’s, are as warm and welcoming as the pristine Visitor’s Center. The town is also home to Wild Adventures, a wildlife-themed amusement park where Gone With the Wynn’s interacted with an assortment of animals. The town rallied together to properly host the Wynn’s because as one local said, “Nobody’s a stranger here.”

While in town be sure to visit Valdosta’s many homes on the Historic Register, check out the Peach State Summer Theatre Series, and explore the Remerton Historic Mill Village. The Crescent House and Gardens are a highly acclaimed scenic offering and Valdosta boasts plenty of shopping from the Valdosta Mall to Summit Pointe.

I moved here 11 years ago to go to college at Valdosta State University. I feel in love with Valdosta

There are no strangers in this town - not for long anyway. We pride ourselves on our hospitality and receive constant rave reviews on it. We are TitleTown, USA for many reasons!

I have lived in Valdosta for 26 years now. Having lived all over the south, mid-west and northeastern parts of the US has given me a unique perspective. Valdosta is big enough to always provide something to do, but small enough that people know your name. Just ask the great airmen of Moody AFB here - they will tell you no community in the world makes them feel like part of the family than Valdosta, GA.
